Crushed Glass

glass blastingCrushed/Ground Glass is offered in a variety of sizes to meet your specific requirements. Crushed/Ground Glass is produced from selected cullet of clear soda lime glass and is non-crystalline, non-toxic and poses no silicosis hazards.

This is an inert abrasive that is recommended by NIOSH as a substitute for slag and mineral abrasives.  It contains no heavy metals and  no free silica, making it an ideal choice for blasting projects where it is impractical to recover lost or spilled spent abrasive.

Crushed glass offers significant cost savings over using plastic beads, soda blast, and glass beads.  Because it is more aggressive, it is able to remove corrosion and tougher coatings that other medias cannot, such as thick and rubbery elastomeric coatings.
